I'm a busy mom. We're all busy. That's why I love this recipe: You can make it once and then use it as a scrub and a face mask as needed. I like to use one scrub a week and one face mask a week, separated by a few days. I can make this every few weeks and use what I need and save the rest for the next treatment.
This oily skin scrub is gentle enough to use on your face, but it's also great for your body. Use on your back and shoulders as needed for acne or even just to keep extra oil away and scrub off dead skin cells.
In this recipe, you'll make a powder with the dry ingredients. Store this powder in a glass jar until you're ready to use it. Then mix with the astringent to make a paste. Gently scrub your skin to use as a skin scrub, or let it sit for 20 minutes until dry for a face mask.

Oily Skin Scrub and Face Mask
What You Need
- 1/2 cup ground oatmeal
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1 tablespoon sea salt, ground finely
- 1 teaspoon ground peppermint leaves
- 1 teaspoon ground rosemary leaves
- Mortar and pestle
- Grind dry ingredients with a mortar and pestle. Grind them individually and measure once they are ground.
- Mix dry ingredients together.
- Store in a glass container up to 6 months.
- Mix 1 tablespoon of this mixture with astringent to make a thick paste. Let thicken for one minute before using.
You can use your favorite astringent. I like to use witch hazel for my oily skin.
If you have oily skin, you should use a scrub or a face mask at least once a week. Don't use either one more often than 3 times a week so you don't over dry your skin.
